Preston NE Preview – Can Preston halt decline?

Preston North End’s decline in the Championship continued on Saturday when they drew 0-0 away at Stoke City as their season has fizzled out in disappointing fashion, winning just one of their last nine matches overall in the English second tier.

One of the casualties in Preston’s alarming slump was former manager Alex Neil as Preston have managed to win just two of their last 13 matches overall which has contributed to Preston’s disappointing 17th place in the Championship table.

Just as disappointing is Preston’s record at Deepdale this season which stands at 5-5-11 16/24 which includes just one win from their last 10 matches which includes a 5-0 loss to Brentford last time out but goals have been short in supply overall as 14 of Preston’s 21 home games have been under 2.5 goals.

Our betting suggestion:
Both teams to score

Derby County Preview – Can Rams avoid fourth loss on trot?

The magnitude of the task at hand for Derby County manager, Wayne Rooney, will have become increasingly evident as The Rams head into this upcoming clash against Preston on the back of three defeats on the trot along with gaining just one win out of their last 11 matches overall.

Recent losses to Reading, Norwich City and Blackburn Rovers have resulted in Derby County being thrust back into the relegation battle as the visitors now sit in 21st place on the Championship ladder and just four points above the bottom three which is indeed a worrying situation for the east midlands club.

Derby’s decline is in stark contrast to their earlier form back in January which saw The Rams pick up six wins in eight games but results away from home have also suffered with Derby losing six of their last seven on the road, while 12 of Derby’s 21 away matches have also been under 2.5 goals.
